. >> the republican party has not developed an alternative idea set other than what mitt romney and paul ryan were campaigning on. ♪ america, america >> are we going to continue to making our case? >> i will say this, i can never, ever find my car in a garage. ♪ i'm going off the rails on a crazy train ♪ ♪ i'm going off the rails on a crazy train ♪ >> with frantic and frenetic behind-the-scenes negotiations as both sides work against the clock trying to reach an agreement on the fiscal cliff that is fast approaching. the president is trying to ramp up public pressure on congress to accept his ideas for debt reduction in. in the coming days he meets with small business owners, middle class taxpayers, around corporate leaders. friday he tried to recapture his winning spirit in pennsylvania touring a toy manufacturing plant. i don't think the event is in whoville but the republicans as grinch playbook is probably evident enough. to hear some of the president's team, they see this christmas going their way. >> i think we're going to get this done. i'm more positive than most. i'm heartened b

. this one is titled "my pal paul." during my 11 years in congress, paul ryan was my comrade and my partner against women's rights. paul, all never forget our times together trying to redefine rape. these were the days. and don't worry, buddy, i got the message. i'll never again say out loud what we really think. very candid, mr. akin. and check it out, the book even comes with pictures. here's one of the dynamic duo. what a nice trip down memory lane. well, let's move on to chapter three. this one is titled "you can always do worse." also, let's move here, here's how. after you've alienated and

, paul ryan is in congress trying to draft person hood amendments that limit a woman's right to choose. they are not for lily ledbetter the fair pay act to give women equality in the workplace. and mitt romney's not for the employment nondiscrimination act. so -- >> we are -- thomas. >> yeah. >> we are an lgbt advocacy group, so of course, the freedom to serve in our nation's military, the freedom to marry are all vital issues of real concern to us. and after meeting with the candidate and speaking with the campaign frequently, we did come to the conclusion that we felt we could work with the romney administration on issues like workplace nondiscrimination. that said, you're right, we do currently disagree with governor romney on the issue of marriage. but that is a significant part of why log cabin republicans exist. we are republicans who can speak to other republicans to make the conservative case for these issues. i mean, we have watched the united states move very rapidly on these issues over the last ten years. and as much as president obama had a process to evolve on the issue o
with it. >> when you heard from paul ryan during the campaign again, he had no back-up. you have to sell these policies to people. you have to explain them in a way that resonates and they can see my daily life looks like this, this is how it is going to be impacted, this is how my children and grandchildren are going to be impacted. these government programs are not going to be here unless there's reform. stuart: can you get elected if you say i'm taking this away? >> i think you can get elected if you articulate it properly, do the outreach, do the marketing. the republican party did not take marketing 101. charles: ryan and romney seemed intimidated about saying we may take away your mortgage deduction, we may do this. they should have gone for it. obviously it is hindsight, but i think they should have gone for it. stuart: let's get to nicole. facebook shares, up earlier and then lower? what's going on? nicole: keep an eye on facebook because yesterday we talked about a couple analyst upgrades. today now you have the latest one which is nomura with a new buy rating and $32 price targ
preserve these basic programs, not to go the route of the paul ryan voucherizing, leaving senioring vulnerable for health insurance they cannot find or cannot afford. but make sure we change the program to save the money, reduce the increase in health care costs. medicaid is the one i'll add, joe, that concerns me the most. it has the least politically articulate constituency. these are the poorest people in america. we've got to make sure at the end of the day, we protect the children, mothers with babies, and particularly the frail elderly being covered by medicaid. we can make changes there and preserve the basic integrity of these programs. >> well, of course, people in medicaid don't have the aarp fighting for them day in and day out, running 30-second ads. isn't that one of the great risks here as we try to put together a budget deal that even if republicans decide to raise taxes that both sides may be afraid to touch the middle class entitlement instead go after medicaid? >> joe, i think it is a concern on a challenge. but untouched, unchanged, medicare runs out of money in 1
furthered by republicans including paul ryan of wisconsin. and the party's former vice presidential nominee. and now, said democrats on the debt ceiling bill. the measure passed 74-26. 28 republicans, one independent voted in favor of the budget measure. >> the debate was long and it as the american people watched to see if we could get the job done. we got the job done and brought the economy back from the brink of disaster. in the end, the two sides came together and neither side got what they wanted. each side laments some of the things that we have to give up, but that ithe way is. that is of the system works and that is how compromise works. cap-cupt a right wing and whatever it is over there. that was not bipartisan and nothing that we could agree to. it would be disastrous for america. this cuts the deficit by $1 trillion and lays the groundwork for much more in the near future. we look forward to theork on the committeto make sure millionaires and billionaires and people that have got to get tax benefits, oil companies will get these huge tax subsidies. that is what the select comm
to be there. so we need to take an honest look at medicare. i happen to believe the paul ryan approach was not the right approach to say the least. i thought that his idea of premium support, capping the amount that was put into it, would have raised the cost of medicare insurance on many seniors and i think it was unworkable and certainly didn't support it. some have suggested raising the medicare retirement age, elinlibility age, i should say. -- eligibility age, i should say. i have trouble with that. my trouble is this, in my family, i had an older brother who passed away a few years ago, when he retired he had health insurance from his employer out in california, and then he had a massive heart attack and surgery, and they canceled his insurance. my very conservative republican brother, who had no use for social programs, started counting the days until he was eligible for medicare. that was the only place he could turn. what was at stake for all of his savings he put together for his family. so when we talk, if anybody wants to talk, about a later eligibility age for medicare, wh
